Final Reflection Questions
What were the most significant take-aways from your experience?
Program Testimonials
One of the most valuable things I have taken from studying abroad is simply the confidence to travel. I now feel I can reasonably go explore wherever I would like, and I feel I am better equipped to learn from travel now.

What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
Program Testimonials
Learn the language BEFORE you go. Prioritize learning about where you are, and if you're in Europe, planning ahead travel-wise will save you a lot of money and will make your trip more enjoyable.

How did the experience impact you and your future educational/career/personal goals?
Program Testimonials
I think my view academically and in general is much more global now. I didn't realize before how U.S.-centric my mindset was; now I consider things more in terms of the whole world than just the American reality. This paradigm shift has really encouraged me to pursue more ambitious degrees and made me realize I want to focus on global solutions then just working in my region.
